AbstractIn the design of large-scale systems the problem is often too large to be approached by a single group. Then the system design problem must be resolved into component subproblems with different groups assigned to work on each subproblem. A. Wayne Wymore's "Tricotyledon Theory of Systems Design" (T3SD) provides a general system theoretic framework for the statement of large-scale system design problems. In this paper some results are developed for the extension of T3SD to the problem of the resolution of system design problems into system component design problems. Initially resolutions with respect to I/O specifications and technologies are defined and examined. Following this, resolutions with respect to merit orderings in which the merit orderings on the component problems have a specified relation with the merit orderings on the original problem are discussed. Ideal, strong and perfect resolutions with respect to merit orderings are defined and relationships among these types of resolutions are discussed. It is shown that trivial strong and ideal resolutions can always be developed from simple resolutions. Perfect resolutions are always ideal resolutions and ideal resolutions are always strong resolutions. Finally it is shown that given a class of simple resolutions there always exists a maximal ideal resolution for that class.

The IPTN's Airborne Data Relay System (ADReS): A System Concept and the Phase One System ConfigurationSoelaiman, Adi Dharma; Roesma, Fauzi Effendy; Indonesian Aircraft Industry Ltd. (International Foundation for Telemetering, 1988-10)By making use of NC212-200 commuter aircraft as an airborne container, the ADReS, a short for airborne data relay system, had been configured and tested in an experimental status during the year of 1987. A kind of test on EMC, EMI, RFI and telemetry data link were applied to the system. Prior to the IPTN's flight test program in the year of 1988 - 1992, the ADReS is designed not only to receive and to relay the data, but also planed to be able to process the data for quick data analysis purposes on board. This paper describes the ADReS system concept and its experimental status system - the Phase One system configuration.
SPECTRAL EFFICIENCY/BIT ERROR RATE OF FQPSK AND OTHER NON-COHERENT SYSTEMS SUPERIOR TO COHERENT SYSTEMS FOR SMS AND BURSTED TDMA AND CDMA SYSTEMSMcCorduck, James A.; Feher, Kamilo; MatrixSat, Inc.; University of California; Digcom, Inc. (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2002-10)For faster acquisition in bursted environments for SMS (Short Messaging Service) and other lower-bit rate applications, non-coherent detection techniques are proposed. Non-Coherent detection demodulators are proposed because faster acquisition capability in bursted environments can result in a reduced amount of preamble bits in the messaging frame, i.e. less overhead, resulting in an effective increase in spectral efficiency. Reducing the preamble can also provide performance enhancement opportunities for Feher Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (FQPSK)  and for other systems. The preamble can also be varied to provide for better Bit Error Rate (BER) performance. The lower bit rate environment also gives the opportunity to employ simpler architectures in lieu of preamble modification. Several non-coherent detection alternatives are described.
